Description

A secret revolution is silently sweeping through all aspects of modern life - business, marketing, computer technology, law enforcement and the judiciary. This is the story of how we make decisions now and will in the future - and how that ability may soon be usurped by computers. It all began 250 years ago with the mathematical theories of the Reverand Thomas Bayes examining the likelihood of future events. His ideas lay all but dormant for over two centuries until technology eventually caught up and developed computers with enough capacity to realize fully the power of Bayes Theory. The author of this book explains how the theory works, where it came from, how it is already shaping our lives and warns about where it may take us tomorrow.show more
